Small Group Ministry Discussion (VirLibrary)

September 27 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Join us for a virtual discussion on “Renewal.” You do not have to attend both sessions but you are encouraged to do so.

We will learn the format for a listening, connecting, and sharing circle. And we will take our inspiration from Wendell Berry’s poem, “The Peace of Wild Things.” Read it as if it were instructions for how to be renewed in nature. And before we meet, spend some time in a natural setting you love. Sit or lie down there, as your body and willingness allow. Slowly ask yourself these five questions:

  1. What do I see?
  2. What do I hear?
  3. What do I smell?
  4. What do I feel against my clothes and skin?
  5. What can I taste? (A bit tricky but be creative.)

In each case, follow up each of the five questions with an additional one: “And what is that trying to say to me?” In other words, after you identify what is catching your eye, as “how is this trying to speak to me?” After noticing what you smell ask, “What message might this have for my soul?” Remember this is not so much about trying to create a long list and figure out how many things you can notice. Instead it’s about trying to sort through the many things you see, smell, hear, touch and taste in order to find the one thing that really sticks out to your senses. And then discerning why it was that particular thing that grabbed you and what it’s deeper restorative message might be.

We will share our reflections during our small group ministry discussion.
